Your hosts, Colin and Marg Baynes offer a welcoming and warm atmosphere which anyone is at home in. Hunters of all ages are made to feel completely at home.

The name – Makapua – comes from the stream and headwaters which originate high in the bush covered hills on the property. Makapua Station is 3700 acres comprising 1700 acres of farmland and 2000 acres of bush. The terrain varies from medium rolling to steep hill country and the homestead – two kilometres into the farm – is nestled in a beautiful valley overlooking a fantastic lake and surrounded by bush.

Deer can often be seen from the tranquil surroundings of the house and hunting lodge as you listen to the Tui singing and contemplate the relaxing and secluded environment that is Makapua Station.

To date over 300 – mainly youngsters but some oldies – have shot their first deer on Makapua Station.

Frequent numbers of 10-14 point stags have been shot each roar.

Each hunt is personally guided by either Colin or one of his hand picked guides. The majority of deer are shot in the evening or early morning on the bush edge with good bush hunting during the day.

Hunting commences the day of arrival and continues until the last morning of the stay and all ages and fitness levels are catered for.

Accommodation and catering is available at the Homestead or the Punga Lodge where deer can often be seen on the nearby hills.

Whether you are looking for a trophy stag, bonding trip between a parent and child or a memorable weekend away with a parent or grandparent, Colin and Marg will make this a trip to remember.

As one client has said – “When you get back to town and tell your mates about what you have been doing it all sounds like a tall story”. Stags are often heard roaring from the homestead and out in the bush the clashing of antlers can often be heard as stags battle it out.

The hospitality and experience my wife and I had whilst hunting on Makapua Station bettered our expectations. We enjoyed our time so much we immediately booked for next year. My wife is now really hooked on hunting.
